tv   The FOX Report With Shepard Smith  FOX News  October 5, 2012 4:00pm-5:00pm PDT

4:00 pm
tonight. make it a great weekend. don't forget the fox news reporting special behind set your dvr if you are not home. that's it for this "special report," fair, balanced and unafraid. >> this is "the fox report." tonight, gas prices in one state jumping as much as 20 cents per gallon overnight. we'll explain why. and the presidential candidate focused on the latest jobs report. >> this morning, we found out that the unemployment rate has fallen to its lowest level since i took office. >> the reason it's come down this year is primarily due to the fact that more and more people have just stopped looking for work. >> tonight, what really drove the drop in unemployment. and the potential effect on the election.
4:01 pm
american airlines cancels dozens more flights because of passenger seats that pop loose. and could the cause actually include spilled soda? plus, a defendant punches out his lawyer, moments after sentencing. not the brightest move in front of the judge. i'm harris faulkner in tonight for shepard smith. and we begin with news the u.s. unemployment rate has dropped to its lowest level in nearly four years. this is especially important because it's one of the last unemployment reports we're going to get before the presidential election. of course, both campaigns are putting their own versions on today's development. and we'll get their reactions in a matter of minutes. this morning, the labor department reporting unemployment fell from 8.1% to 7.8% last month after businesses added 114,000 jobs. here is a look at how the rate has fluctuated during president obama's administration.
4:02 pm
you can see that sharp rise in the beginning when we were still in a recession. and then a gradual slow lowering over the last couple of years. the unemployment news comes as we get word that americans borrowed $18 billion more in august than the month before. much of that borrowing coming in the form of credit cards and student loans. wall street reaction somewhat mixed today. the dow gaining 35 and closing at its highest level in nearly five years on this friday. the nasdaq dropped 13. the s&p 500 was flat. right now, republic candidate for president, governor mitt romney is speaking at an event in st. petersburg, florida. we understand is he going to be touching on the economy. let's watch for just a moment. >> the participation of our adults in the workforce were the same as at the time that he got elected. our unemployment rate would be about 11%. people in this country are having a hard time finding a job. people in this country are having a hard time making ends meet even if they do have a
4:03 pm
job. so it's time to have someone who is elected president who actually has a plan and i do. we will create 12 million jobs and rising incomes. that's the kind of future we need to have for america. [cheers] and you know the things. i have got five things. you heard me talk about them. i don't have to look at notes to know what they're by the way. i know what they're. number one, number one, we're going to take advantage of our energy, our coal, our gas, our oil our nuclear, our renumbers. [. [cheers and applause] >> we're going to double the number of permits on federal lands and federal waters and get the oil off the shore of alaska and build that pipeline from canada as well and get the oil here. [cheers and applause] that means lower gasoline prices because we have got to take advantage of our energy resources here. people are struggling under the high cost of energy. that, by the way creates new jobs too, 3.5 to 4 million jobs will come back if we take
4:04 pm
advantage of our energy resources. number two, we will make trade work for us. we are going to open up new markets for trade. you particularly here in florida will have opportunity to sell goods in latin american and nearby. language opportunities and time zone opportunities. we will do well opening up more trade. but i will tell you, this i will crack down on china or any other nation that cheats. [cheers and applause] [chanting u.s.a.] there is a third thing. my third thing is this i want to make sure the people have the skills. those 47 different federal trading programs that all report into 8 different agencies think of the waste. i want to take the money from those programs, give florida its fair share and say florida you create the programs best for your own people. get the federal government out of it. [cheers and applause] i want to fix our schools.
4:05 pm
i want to fix our schools for the jobs of tomorrow so our kids have the skills they need to succeed. i know what it takes to do that. >> harris: governor romney life tonight at an event in florida an important battleground state as you know for the presidential election coming up in just a month. he is talking about the economy and we were just talking about jobs numbers so we wanted to dip in as that conversation was topical for us on fox report. that's the political side. today, as i was telling you off the top of fox report, the big news, the unemployment jobs report that came out today and politics aside, let's just focus in on the numbers. >> all right. >> harris: let's go to fox business network gerri willis live in her studio here in new york. gerri, tell us what to take away from the jobs report. >> harris, it's confusing there are two different surveys. the information coming from two of them disconnect. let me show you numbers here. the household survey says this is the contentious number today that 873,000 jobs were created in september. here is how they get the number. they call people on the
4:06 pm
telephone. about 60,000 of them and then they extrapolate from there. i have got to tell you a lot of these folks, in fact, about half were part timers. normally when we think about job creation, we don't count the part timers. >> very interesting. some of those jobs i also read were temporary seasonal jobs as well. they are already building up for the retail season. let me ask you this, what do you say to those people who question whether or not these numbers are legit. >> a lot of people are saying that the government is i can cooking the books here. let me tell you they get those kind of accusations all the time. here is the deal. the only number that really counts in this report is the 114,000 number. that matches what wall street expected in what with what most believe happen. the household number i mentioned before, the big 800,000 number, it has a margin error of 400,000. so it could be off by half. so big difference, big debates going on with these numbers tonight, harris. >> harris: real quickly you mentioned how wall street was anticipating. we had such a mixed review.
4:07 pm
what does that indicate to us? >> mixed review on the report itself. that communicates that there is not a lot of confidence in what this administration is reporting tonight. >> gerri willis live from the fox business network from her studio show just wrapping up. thank you wanted goovment good to see you tonight. president obama says unemployment is at the lowest level since he took office. governor romney says this is not what a real recovery looks like. both candidates starting their rallies in the battleground state of virginia. we showed you moments ago mr. romney is in the state of florida at this hour speaking at a rally there they each have a very different take on today's jobs report. >> we can do better. we don't have to stay on the path we have been on. we can do better. there was a report that just came out this morning on job creation this last month. there were fewer new jobs created this month than last month. >> but today's news certainly is not an excuse to try to talk down the economy to score a few political points. it's a reminder that this
4:08 pm
country has come too far to turn back now. >> harris: then the president went on with his familiar slogan saying governor romney supports the same policies that led to the financial crisis. the governor says he has a plan to create millions of jobs. campaign carl cammeron live in st. petersburg, florida. carl, what else is governor romney saying about the jobs numbers? >> as he continues on here today in st. petersburg, this morning he was in rural western virginia talking in coal country to miners, some of them laid off from their jobs, he made the argument that he is not talking down the economy. he is being frank about the economy and talking down the obama record. in mr. romney's view, if you take a look at the unemployment and account for those who have taken themselves out of job-seeking market, it's far worse than today's sub8 number. watch. >> the truth is, if the same share of people were participating in the workforce today as on the day the president got elected, why our
4:09 pm
unemployment rate would be around 11%. >> and the romney campaign and experts say if you take those who are out of work, those who stop looking for work and those are ho are under employee employed, the real unemployment number as it's called is north of 14%, harris. >> harris: number subject i understand came up on the trail today is that governor romney shifted his position on what he once called his inelegant remark about the 47%. >> that was one of the things that democrats were criticizing president obama for having not brought up in the debate the other night. criticizing mr. romney for his now 5 month old remarks to a closed fundraiser surreptitiously videoed that he suggested 47% of americans who don't pay income taxes are looking for some sort of government handout. first he called it inelegant. never defended it and never renounced it last night on the hannity show he did so summarily. watched? >> in this case i said something that's just completely wrong. i absolutely believe, however,
4:10 pm
that my life has shown that i care about 100%. >> completely wrong. a big jump from inelegant. having said that the romney campaign would like very much to close the chapter on this and get it behind them. the democrats today, the obama campaign, the democratic national committee and a whole bunch of other groups were firing off attack ads and groups trying to keep it center stage right through the presidential debate next week and the two presidential debates that follow. >> as you pointed out, carl it, didn't come up in this past debate may very well close the door on it yet. carl cammeron on the campaign trail for us tonight. thanks very much. >> you bet. >> harris: reaction tonight coming from others not inside the beltway to the jobs report. more on that part of the story in just a moment. right now wendell goler is live in cleveland at the president's second campaign stop of the day. wendell, we're told we'll get just one more jobs report. we know before election day. but analysts are now saying in some ways today's is more important because of early voting. >> well, harris, early voting
4:11 pm
is already underway here in ohio. and many people believe ohio is a state that mitt romney has to meet in order to win the white house. part of the reason the democrats have such a big operation in ohio. in fact, what they're spending a lot of their money on in this state is a push to get out the early vote. >> ohio, i just have one question. are you registered to vote? [in unison yes] because if you are not, if i are not, you have got four days left. if you are, you can vote right now. >> the president will be back here next week back in the state next week with the same message vote early. harris? >> harris: well, wendell, i know earlier former g.e. chairman jack welch was accusing the administration of cooking the books. he says he has no evidence of that but here is what he told fox news channel earlier.
4:12 pm
>> look, i don't know what the right number is, but i will tell you these numbers don't smell right when you think about where the economy is right now. >> harris: that's what he had to say. what about the white house? what's the response? >> the white house has no input in the jobless numbers. in fact, they didn't get the figures early. the labor department people who conduct the surveys are professionals, not political appointees. secretary says she is offended that people would suggest her department would fudge the figures. >> you know, i'm insulted when i hear that because we have a very professional, civil service organization where you have top, stop economists that work at the bls. they have been doing these calculations. >> she says it really shouldn't be surprising that after strong upward revisions of the job creation in july and august that we would see a sharp decline in the jobless rate in september. harris? >> harris: wendell goler, thank you very much. now to california, where
4:13 pm
